Guacamole Salad

Who doesn't love guacamole? Well, here's a way to have your guac and a salad too. By simply adding arugula, radishes, and carrots to a basic guacamole recipe this delicious condiment before a full-fledge side dish.

1/2 red onion, finely diced
1/2 cup chopped arugala
3 radishes, cut into thin match sticks
1 carrot, cut into thin match sticks
1 ripe avocado
1 tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons finely cilantro or parsley
1 lime
Salt and pepper

In a bowl, toss together onion, arugula, carrots, and radishes. Prepare the avocado by slicing it in half and removing the pit using the base of a sharp knife. Without removing the flesh from the skin, slice the avocado diagonally, then lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl. Mix avocado with the other veggies, mashing it as need to remove any large lumps of avocado. Add the tomato and cilantro or parsley. Squeeze the lime and mix in the juice. Season with salt and pepper.
